Do You confidence Sep 11, 2020

My first day of 5th grade I picked out a matching denim top and bottom.
.
My shorts were fairly long and the denim had embroidered twine swirls on the button up shirt and shorts.
.
My shoes were new, colorful sneakers and I had them set up... prestaged on their box. I had long crew socks from k mart....

Ice Cream Headache

I think my social media consumption has reached ice cream sundae status.

The first few bites are amazing...and for a while, it's the best treat I've ever had. Then, it stops tasting good. Then it makes me feel sick. Then I have an ice cream headache and hangover.

But here's the...

Wobble Wobble

Yesterday Georgia took 3 steps in a row. I put a video on my ig story. Go see her! She falls on her butt after the third step but is so happy. She is 13.5 months and can say about 20 words...but, despite her advanced verbal skills, she seems to have very little interest in...

Big Booty Ostrich

Yesterday I got a DEXA scan. What's that? It's basically like an X-Ray that tells you your body fat percentage. But it is super accurate and breaks down exactly where your muscle and fat is located. Right arm - 8.2 pounds of muscle and 2.1 pounds of fat. That kind of detail!

So...

Doing What's Good For You

Life has leveled out. I know not in the world, but at least in my house. Josh started back to work this week and we are in the first few days of our new "regular" routine. His first 3 weeks home felt more like a vacation. He had to self-quarantine before reporting to his...

Time Warp Countdown

I almost typed March 23. Life feels kind of like a time warp right now. Where did the last two months go?   

So since it's been a few weeks since I wrote a blog post, here are some updates. We are down to 12 days until Josh finally moves home. If you are new to the...

I miss writing.

 

Yesterday I caught myself thinking about writing and feeling bad about it. Blogging feels good because it gets thoughts out of my head. I love talking to you and hearing back from you. But it's been hard lately.

 

When I say feeling bad, let me be specific.

 

"If...

Distancing Vibes

Last night the boys and I sat on my bed and played Egyptian Rat.   We normally play games on the dining room table, but last night we sat crosslegged on my bed.

  It reminded me of being a teenager and playing with my friends.   Even though the boys...

Stress Chips

Today is the last day of school for the boys. Starting Monday, they are home for 6 weeks. They don't go back until April 24th.

I'm sure everyone is feeling at least some version of stress from the virus. My stress is contained to a few small things...but nonetheless, it's there. The...

Georgia just slept 11 hours. I'm not kidding.

 

We started the "Taking Cara Babies" sleep program 5 nights ago and we are finally getting somewhere.  

We started sleep training just in time for Georgia and I to travel to San Diego tomorrow.

I'm sure we will have to start all over...

Happy Normal Day

I did this thing I do sometimes.  I write a journal, get 2/3 of the way through and then delete it.   Not because I hate it... but because it is surface-level reflections.   They are meaningless....even to me.

Writing is a funny process depending on my...
